When I was in Kenya in April, one of my main goals was to show the Mercy House skills teacher Debra a few new ideas for product.
When Debra finished the 8th grade, she didn’t have the opportunity to continue her education, so she got a job. She can make anything and has taught all of our girls how sew, bead, create jewelry and art. She is so talented that all I have to do is hand her a sample and she takes it apart and remakes it, teaching herself and then the girls.
While fabric options are limited, we scoured the city one rainy day to scout out cute material for new aprons and makeup brush bags. My photographer friend Suzanne (who can also sew) taught Debra a couple of new patterns and will you just look at this:
All the aprons (this is one of four designs we will sell over the next 9 months) and makeup brush bags, have a special tag:
This has been a beauty for ashes kind of year, so it’s our theme. Check out our popular new women’s fit t-shirt:
And if this Freeset bag doesn’t want to make you love mercy, nothing will! Purchasing this bag not only benefits Mercy House, it provides jobs for women set free from sex trafficking in India. It’s a win-win. Check it out here:
I was able to show Debra and the girls this lovely new 3-strand necklace design.
